    Slingbox useless with HDCP cable boxes?

    kwang0429

      so I received the new Time Warner DVR ( Samsung SMT-H3270 ), the way I hooked it up is I use HDMI out from the cablebox to my receiver and I use the Component out from the cablebox to the slingbox, but somehow on the sling player it now says Weak or no video signal detected.

       

      After doing the research I noticed that the new cable boxes all have HDCP on it and once when the HDMI port is used, it automatically disabled the component port so I can't hook up to the slingbox pro-HD anymore.

       

      is there a way out or my slingbox is just useless now with this cablebox?

       

      thanks in advance with any answers.
